Abstract:

The structure of the external front window of the X-20A is analyzed. A sophisticated matrix method of analysis, rather than a classical analytic method, was used to determine the behavior of a window of the X-20A re-entry vehicle under loads and temperatures. A computer solution provides results that can be used for future developments of re-entry vehicles and reveals areas that should be given further study. Author
